It is with great sadness to announce the passing of David George Albert on December 12, 2018. He was born April 20th 1954 in Fort Frances, Ontario to Arthur and Shirley Albert. He was a loving husband to Christine, father to his daughter Alison and son in law Bill, and to his son David and daughter in law Dana, Brother to siblings Suzanne (Steve), Lori-Ann (Ian), Billie-Kay (Jake), Robin, Uncle to many nieces and nephews, Grandpa to his Remi Dog, and a friend to many.
Dave was a true railroader even though he spent some time at the paper mill. His proudest moments were always the ones he spent with his wife and children. He cherished every moment with his daughter Alison, his baby girl. He was so proud of her artistic talents and her passion for life. They were two peas in a pod. His son‘s qualification of becoming a locomotive engineer was a proud day for him and Dave and Dana’s wedding this past September was the type of family events he lived for, as family was everything to Dave. Some of his favourites times were fishing with his children and riding his motorcycle with friends. The memories he made throughout his lifetime with his family will always mean he is with us. Dave being able to drive his blue camaro with Christine on road trips or just around town was something that always had him smiling from ear to ear. He was a family man and loved Christine with everything he had, she was his world. He was a man of many words and always had a story to tell, which are some of the moments we are all are going to miss the most.
A big thank you to the Police Officers, Paramedics, Neighbours and to all the Nurses and Doctors at Lake of the Woods District Hospital. To Dana’s work family for treating our family like their own. We appreciate it all more than words can express.
Thank you to everyone for your love and support during such a difficult time, from the bottom of our hearts thank you.
A Celebration of Life will be on December 20th from 2-4pm at the Clarion Hotel. In Lieu of Flowers, Donations can be made to Lake of the Woods District Hospital.
